A Big Bang concert in Wuhan, China has been canceled due to safety concerns, according to reports.

On Mar. 17, Chinese media outlet CN Hubei reported that local police informed the concert that was originally planned for March 27 at the Gwangwi Sports Center has been canceled. 

According to CN Hubei, the concert was cancelled due to the size of the venue raising concerns of overcrowding. With the concert venue not able to guarantee the safety of attendees in regards to fire and traffic safety, they were unable to grant permission to Big Bang to use the venue. 

What makes the entire situation even stranger is that tickets for the concert haven't begun its sales.

According to reports from local Wuhan police, "Tickets for the concert are not yet available for purchase, but we have seen a massive reaction online. The Gwangwi Sports Center can hold around three to four thousand attendees, but it seems that the concert will sell around 10,000 tickets." 

With such a huge amount of expected attendees, it seems that police want to prevent accidents from occurring during the concert.

Big Bang are currently in the middle of their "Big Bang 2016 MADE V.I.P. Tour" in China. They performed in cities on March 11, 12, 13, and 17, and will continue on the March 24, 25, 26 in three more cities in China.
